Handprint Christmas Peace Dove Art

It's time to start making Christmas crafts! Yesterday we put up the tree and it was so, so sweet to see my preschooler oohing and ahhing over the lights.  Today I tried to keep the Christmas-y momentum going with this super easy paper plate dove craft.  Inspired by Imagination Tree's sweet dove handprint keepsake, we made our own version using paper plates instead of salt dough.  (Anna's craft is really, really lovely, so definitely check out the post for another fun idea.)

A couple of weeks ago, I hosted a playdate for some preschool-aged friends at the park.  I love creating with kids, so I wanted to bring an easy, park-friendly, nature-inspired craft. These super easy cardboard fairy houses were perfect.  There was very little prep and the kids loved looking for the items and making their own houses.
